9:30 am.  Governor says that flooding will be mild. Awaiting flood reports from the OG southside.  Bands of snow will create waxing and waning snow fall all day into the evening.

9:39 am  Report from Rick Cuttrell:

Snow:  Severe blizzard continues into tonight with heavy snow through this morning and then snow at varying intensities this afternoon and evening.

There is still the likelihood that sleet will mix with the snow over coastal sections of Monmouth and Ocean Counties for a period later this morning and early afternoon.  Any sleet will change back to snow this afternoon.

Snow will taper off and end between 9pm and midnight tonight.

Coastal Monmouth/coastal northern Ocean, including the Neptune area:  18-24 inches (will mix with sleet for a period Saturday morning)

Flooding:     No flooding reported from OG Southside.  Sunday morning will be  1/2 to 2 feet above normal and will produce minor to moderate street flooding in the usual flood prone areas.

Winds:   Along the coast, Northeast winds of 25mph to 40mph, with gusts to 60mph today.  Winds will slowly decrease after midnight tonight and Sunday.

11 am:   While you are waiting for the storm to pass, find something to do, but be careful—in 9 months there will be a surge of births.

11:30 am.  From Neptune Mothership, land of good and evil—-:    PLEASE stay off the roads.

As of 8:30 AM, 10.5″ of snow has fallen in Neptune.  It is possible that we will receive another foot of snow between 10:00 AM and 6:00 PM with snow falling at a rate of 3″ per hour at times.

Snow plowing continues, however our efforts are being hampered by flooding along the Shark River and dozens of vehicles stuck in the roadways.

4 pm:  from Megan Williamson on Asbury Avenue:    “The winds have been relentless blowing up from green way. But credit should be given to Neptune Township. They have run a plow down the street a couple of times an hour since about 2 am.”

MARIAN McPARTLAND    “Blackberry Winter”  from her album Twilight World

 Editor’s note:   Marian McPartland  (1918-2013) , a Grammy winning jazz pianist, was one of the few women to become famous in the male dominated jazz star firmament. I heard her play live in the 1970’s in a small theatre in South Hampton. I became a fan immediately and saw her play live on other occasions.  There was a sweet deeply felt romanticism in her music, and I couldn’t help but think that she brought some deeply rooted feminine  expressiveness to her playing.   She had a long career, and her bio. is worth Googling.—-Paul Goldfinger @Blogfinger

Weatherman Rick Cuttrell says, “As we close the books on one of the all-time coldest months on record, March is coming in like a lion with wintery precipitation threats today, Tuesday night and then possibly a third on Thursday.”  Emergenchy parking rules are in effect today.

Blogfinger photographers love to photograph snow, so even though you may be sick of the white stuff, we love good photography:

We played this song yesterday by Nora Jones and Willie Nelson, but Lee Morgan, our resident music professor at the Blogfinger University, has a retro-idea.  This is what he says:

“The last words I uttered last night were “Baby It’s Cold Outside.”  No coincidence that my first words this morning were those same words. 

“In 1944, Frank Loesser penned a song entitled “Baby It’s Cold Outside.” The song is a duet between a man and a woman…

“The piece has been covered by dozens of artists over the years. In 1961 Ray Charles and Betty Carter came together and made this iconic recording. There is nothing I can say that will aid the  experience of carefully listening to their magic.” 

RAY CHARLES AND BETTY CARTER with a 54year old classic duet for the ages:
